It's is great for exfoliating and even polishing watches and jewellery. We had a really good buffet lunch surrounded by massive lizards that would walk right under your feet. After lunch we walked up to the look out point. We were slightly disappointed when we got up there because it is not the view you see on ...

Todd was our skipper and Henry was his *****, cooking all our food and everything else. It was one of our favourite trips so far and started with eating dinner on the deck as the sun set.
